floppy disc drive problems

My floppy disc drive is kicking in for no apparent reason.This has happened in the middle of Word,also kicked in when I was trying to download Office updates (which subsequently failed)and seems to whir away when I am turning the computer off.

Is your anti-virus software configured to scan the floppy drive? If so, disable that option.

Via email: 'Hi Dan, I am operating on Norton but I cannot see anything in the set up options that permanently sets the drives to be scanned unless it goes under a description other than drives Degsey'
